USCG Sound Signaling Requirements

The United States Coast Guard has published an extremely technical document describing the minimum requirements for sound signaling capabilities for boats.


Vessels less than 20m (65') must have a whistle capable of 120 db at 1 m, and it must be able to be heard 0.5 miles away.  Vessels 20-75m (65-246') must have both a whistle and a bell.  The whistle must produce 130 db at 1m, and be heard for 1 mile.
